House Passes “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act” In Huge Win For Gun Rights

This is still going to have to pass the Senate but it’s off to a great start. It also makes perfect sense. If a person is licensed to carry in one state, why shouldn’t they be able to carry across state lines?

House passes concealed carry gun bill in win for GOP and NRA

The House passed legislation to permit concealed carry license holders to conceal a handgun in other states, the first time Congress has taken action on a gun bill since President Donald Trump was sworn into office.

The “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act,” a top priority for the National Rifle Association and other gun-rights groups, passed 231-198. Six House Democrats crossed the aisle and voted for the measure, while 14 Republicans opposed it.

Senate Democrats are strongly opposed to the bill, arguing it would override individual states’ efforts to control who can carry concealed weapons inside their borders and create what is in essence a national gun license…

Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.), author of the concealed carry bill, said Wednesday’s vote “is a huge win for freedom, the American people, and the 15 million concealed carry permit holders across this country who every day become the risk of becoming criminals because they cross an invisible state line.”

This is great news for law abiding Americans who carry and a win for the Second Amendment.
